The Best Camping Cooking Gear for Every Type of Camper
Camp food is traditionally simple: think hot dogs and beans over a fire. But the reality is, much of what you cook at home can be cooked at the campground. There’s just one catch—you need to have the right camping cooking gear.
Making mouthwatering camping meals is so much easier when you have good cooking gear. But with so much gear to choose from, what do you really need?
Every camper that’s planning on cooking needs to have a few staple items in their camping kitchen arsenal. First up? A cook stove or a campfire. You’ll also need something to cook in, something to serve with, and something on which to place your delicious camping grub…and finally, something to eat that grub with.
Camping cooking gear differs depending on the type of camping you’re doing; a car camper might bring different items than a backpacker or RV camper. These basic items will get you started, no matter what kind of camping you’re doing:
- Reusable ice packs
- Cast iron pot and pan
- Cooking spatulas
- Cutting board
- Plates, bowls, cups
- Eating utensils

Outdoor Life: Do You Really Need a Water Filter for Backpacking and Mountain Hunting?
Of all the creepy crawlers, ticks keep me on high alert. They can be very tiny in the nymph stage and difficult to see. They love to hang out in tall grasses along the trail and hitch a ride on hikers passing by. I plan on treating most of my clothes and gear with Sawyer Permethrin.
Ultra-compact and lightweight
I would often just drink directly from the sawyer squeeze if I was feeling lazy- which by the way works wonderfully.
